Welcome to the Toronto Student Transportation Group’s ‘Access to Education’ website.

The Toronto Student Transportation Group is an initiative between both the Toronto Catholic District School Board and the Toronto District School Board. Our goal is to ensure the health and safety of our students through various modes of transportation and to help families make informed decisions regarding their transportation choices when accessing education here in Toronto.

Transportation Portal

Transportation PortalThe Transportation Portal is a new tool that the Transportation unit has provided to help parents access information about their child’s transportation.  After registering for an account  (by selecting the ‘parent’ link in the top right hand corner on the website) families are able to add their children to their account and information about their transportation services.  (Please note though – if you are looking to register for the school bus itself you need to visit your local school and if eligible, they will forward your application to our office so we can set up the service.  Once that is completed you will be able to add your children to your portal account.) This will include their bus route number, the approximate bus stop times, the company providing the service and their contact information.  Once you have your children added you can also subscribe to the late bus portal.  This utility will send an e-mail to your inbox any time a school bus operator reports a late bus that your child is assigned.  The Consortium will continue to review the viability of sending text messages as another means of notification to families in the future.

We hope this new tool provides greater access to information and allow us to communicate with our families better.

As always, parents/guardians/caregivers are encouraged to monitor the Transportation Portal and the TSTG website daily for updates. ...

Transportation staff are sending out verification forms to schools regarding transportation service for next school year. Please make sure you update your local school about any changes for your family for next year that impact transportation. The sooner the school receives this information the more time transportation staff will have to ensure it is updated in the transportation system. This will help us minimize changes to bus routes in the new school year. ...
